North Creek is home to Chinook salmon, primary orca food, and the forest acts as a giant sponge keeping waters clean and cool.
On Saturday, October 8th Whale Scout volunteers planted 71 native trees at the Maury Island Marine park. It was a beautiful stormy fall day in Puget Sound with dark clouds, occasional strong winds, and by the end of the day, rain - perfect planting weather! The views over Puget Sound were stunning even without seeing any whales.
This orientation session is for new and returning volunteers. Come meet other volunteers, learn about the logistics of whale watching with us, and our program goals. The session includes special guests Nicole Killebrew from the Seattle Aquarium teaching about communication techniques for collective solutions and Juliana Houghton getting you up to speed on whales of the Salish Sea and teaching about the latest research updates!
